Crackle Stitch

Best Blog Tips

I love to try new stitches and alsto to invent some. Over the years, I've been blessed with enough skill to be able to do that, and I've shared what I could along the way. This is one of my stitches. It looks like the kind of stitch you would achive with Tunisian Crochet, but it is made in easy and fast regular crochet. Yet, it has a nice stretch to it, so it would be nice for socks or garments. Nevertheless, because of the rich texture it has, you could very well use it in a sampler-style afghan or to enhance the front of a purse or tote bag. This stitch you be used in blocks, or as an overall, texture stitch in anything you want to make. Try it! It might become one of your favorite stitches.
Worsted weight yarn
Size "H" hook

Ch 23.
Row 1: Working in back loops, only, throughout: 1 sc in each ch across. Ch1, turn. (22 sc)
Row 2: 1 sc in 1st sc, 1 sc in next sc, skip next sc, 1 sc in back loop of next sc, in same spot, reach down with the hook into the horizontal loop of the front loop left in the same stitch of the previous row and insert the hook there and pull up a loop, complete an sc.
*1 sc in next sc, skip the next sc, 1 sc in next sc, now in the same spot, reach down to the horizontal bar of the stitch in previous row and pull up a loop, complete sc. Rep from * around. (Count your sts! Make sure you always have 22 across.) If for some reason you have more, skip 1st st as you go across when you repeat row 2, until you have 22, if you have less, unravel and make sure you have enough to make the row.

Rep rows 1 and 2 alternately for stitch.

Welcome to Craftybegonia, Cami. Yes, I love new stitches too, and when I get a chance I play with my hook, this was one of those times.
